ABSTRACT

This study investigated the effect of story mapping program on the comprehension and mean length of utterance in clutters of students with autistic disorder. For the baseline phase, researchers conducted a comprehension test after reading the prepared stories, analyzed the recordings of the story retold by the students, and mean length of utterance in clutters. For the intervention phase, researchers trained the students to read stories and to construct story maps, tested their comprehension and story construction ability, and then mean length of utterance in clutters. The maintenance phase was identical to the baseline phases. The results of this study are as follows. First, the story mapping was effective in comprehension. It helped the students show better factual comprehension performance and inferential comprehension performance. Second, the story mapping training was effective in improving the mean length of utterance in clutters. Both the C-unit of all the students and the average cluster length of each C-unit were improved. Overall, the story mapping was positively effective in improving comprehension and mean length of utterance in clutters of students with autistic disorder.
